Default Byzantine Catholic Missal?

Hey everyone,

Is there such thing as a Weekday Missal in the Byzantine Catholic Church (like that of the St. Joseph Weekday Missal)? Thanks

God bless,
ZP

Keep in mind that a "missal" in the sense of all texts needed for the Eucharist between two covers is practically unknown in Eastern Christendom.

The Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Winnipeg has published a very good book called THE DIVINE LITURGY: AN ANTHOLOGY FOR WORSHIP, containing the 4 Little Hours, the two Divine Liturgies (St. John and St. Basil), and something for every day, even if it's reference to the Common of Saints (aka General Menaion).

Scripture lessons are given by reference only, as the faithful's part is to listen attentively as the Word is proclaimed, but they are useful to look up at home first.

It is very similar to Abp. Joseph Raya's classic magnum opus BYZANTINE DAILY WORSHIP (which follows Melkite practice), but as well had Matins, Vespers, and Compline.

There is a Ukrainian Catholic Sunday and Festal Missal. Its title is "Hear Me O Lord" and is published by Basilian Fathers Publications in Michigan.

The Ruthenian Divine Liturgies book includes the Sunday, Holyday, and Daily liturgies of St. John, and the Sunday and Holyday liturgies of St. Basil, and Great Vespers for saturday evenings and the evening before great feasts, with instructions for both stand alone and vigil divine liturgy uses, plus the majority of vesperal and Divine Liturgy propers for the year.

It's also omitted the text of the priest's and deacon's prayers, doesn't include adaptations for hierarchical liturgies, nor for Deaconal nor Reader's Vespers, nor does it include Matins, 3rd Hour, 6th hour, nor Compline.

Neither does it include readings. Those are listed on the annual calendar issued by the Metropolitan, and you can look them up.

It's also 467 pages of 7x8.5 inches, is awkward to use, and requires much flipping in use when doing the DL of St. Basil, and some flipping when using the propers.

And it omits the Slavonic, much to the chagrin of several, being monolingual English.

The Ukrainian Catholic Anthology has the weekday and feastday propers and would be the closest single-volume to such a thing. It also contains a prayer rule for preparation for Holy Communion, Confession, and the Little Hours.

Hi Diak,
Can you tell me where The Ukrainian Catholic Anthology you refer to in your post of January 6, 2007 can be purchased?
Regards,

Hello Diak,
No need to search. We found The Ukrainian Catholic Anthology at http://www.ukrweekly.com/old/archive/2005/120528.shtml on the wonderful world wide web.
Best wishes,
Medi

Medi, you can also obtain the Anthology through Byzantine Church Supplies in Philadelphia. Pani Dobrodivka Myroslava is wonderful to work with and is the wife of the Archeparchial Cathedral Rector, Fr. Ivan Demkiv. It is towards the end of the catalog.

The St. Josaphat Eparchy's bookstore also carries both the Anthology and the accompanying CDs:

There is a Byzantine Catholic Ruthenian Book of Prayer published by the Byzantine Seminary Press, PO Box 7626, 3605 Perrysville Ave., Pittsburgh. PA 15214. This wonderful book is indeed qualified to be labeled a Byzantine Catholic Missal. This book includes the Divine Liturgies of St. Basil the Great and St. John Chrysostom as well as a host of Byzantine prayers.

It is my hope that many will avail themselves of this book.

Regards,
Medi

Again, in the Byzantine tradition, as Cluny mentions we really don't have the concept of a "missal' per se.

While the Byzantine Book of Prayer is a nice little prayer book, and has several good aspects such as a couple of Akathists, it does not have many of the propers for the Divine Liturgy, and also no longer contains the more recently approved English texts of the Divine Liturgies promulgated by the Council of Hierarchs of the Byzantine Catholic Church in America.

Which also means that using it would be a liturgical abuse, Patchunky. Are you advocating disobedience of our legitimately ordained and enthroned hierarchs?
